A Guide to Industrial Scales with a Printer

As the leading UK supplier, Marsden offers a wide range of industrial scales for printing and recording weight.

If you’d like to take your operation to the next level and increase efficiency, then take a look at this guide to industrial scales with a printer and discover how using one could benefit your business.

Why print your weight data?

Many businesses are required to keep an up to date record of weight readings whether it is for compliance, to track orders and consignments, or to monitor processes.

Connecting your industrial scale to a printer to keep an accurate record of weight readings can help your business to reduce the number of costly errors, save on production time and improve customer service.

Make an accurate hard copy of your data

Printing an accurate hard copy of your weight data directly from the scale can help to save your business time as there is no need to record the readings manually.

This also reduces the risk of human error and allows the data to be shared across platforms and different sections of the production process. The weight readings can then be compared to previous weight information to ensure the consistency of the businesses products or manufacturing parts.

Create a sticky label and track consignments

Simply press the ‘Print’ on your scales indicator to print-out the display’s weight reading on to an easy-to-read sticky label so your customers will know exactly what they are receiving.

As well as an accurate weight reading, these labels can also include further information such as the date and time, company name and consignment number if your business is required to track any outgoing packages or shipments.

Improve Automated Weighing Processes

Many of our industrial scales with printer options are suitable for automated weighing processes and boast optional relay boards.

These industrial scales are able to monitor and improve your businesses process and have the capability to turn other devices on or off when liquid filling or weight limits are met.

How can Industrial Scales with a printer save your business money?

At Marsden, our most popular industrial scales for printing and recording weight readings are fitted with the Jadever JIK indicator. These scales can be connected to a computer device using the Scale to PC USB Lead without any additional software.
